Jacob Jordan and Lottie Capp are pupils at Ingatestone & Fryerning C of E Junior school and also Dementia Friends. They explained why they thought it was very important for everyone to understand that people with dementia should be treated in a kind way. Seven year old Jacob said that just because they might ask you the same question again and again, “don’t make them feel silly”. They both spoke about family members with dementia. Head Teacher Neil Taggart explained that Mark Neville from Essex Dementia Communities visited the school who had spoken to the pupils about dementia. Lottie and Jacob talked about discussions in classrooms following the visit. They had both also visited local dementia groups. Mr Taggart commented that these visits were part of a Healthy Schools Project. These visits were good for both the children and also the the suffers from dementia who might never spend time with children.
